Dear Wendy,

People like you who affect how kids think, and actually influence some to step
out of the norms we, as a society, have set up... People like you who
actually have the gall to go against the grain of what taxpayers are ponying
up their tax dollars for... I can't find words for how I feel... You actually
*thought* it'd be ok to do any old thing to your hair? For... fun? Do you
not even realize what just one kid in a classroom with colored bangs could do?
Much less three or four?

I have two words for you, Wendy:

Right on.
